And you thought wristwatches were just for the, well, wrists. What you’re looking at are Cardi B-approved heels that were launched during British designer Christian Cowan’s spring-summer 2019 fashion show held during New York Fashion Week in early September. Cowan, who shot to fame dressing Cardi B for her debut studio album cover of Invasion of Privacy, worked with famed Italian footwear specialist Giuseppe Zanotti on this line of timepiece-based heels. The gold-plated wristwatch bracelets were expertly introduced into a couple of Zanotti’s most iconic shoe silhouettes, in particular a heel-less heel. Cowan’s idea of featuring the baller wristwatches as straps stems from his reminder to wearers to “never be out of time.” In light of that statement, he wasted little time in putting these on the market too as they were made available right after his fashion show at Giuseppe Zanotti boutiques in New York, London and Paris as well as online stores. One thing’s for sure, these are heels that Cardi B might not want to toss across the room without a second thought.
